Wiggly Worms in the Garden
Wiggly worms are a plenty in the woods! Dragonflies and Kindergarten have been exploring why worms are such an important part of our eco-system. The children were fascinated to learn how worms break through the soil and eat decaying plant matter. We have a compost bin and this proved a very popular activity to fill it will straw, hay and leaves. The children loved the RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch last week so this was a nice segway into learning about the food chain. Sarah showed us a funny dance that the birds do to trick the worms to the surface of the soil. "Worms live under the ground."
